New US Open champion Bryson DeChambeau will find ways to win even if golf’s rule makers try to guard against his power off the tee, his coach Mike Schy says.
American BrysonDeChambeau won his first major by six shots at the testing US Open Winged Foot course in New York on Sunday.
The 27-year-old averaged 325-yards with his driver, prompting calls for golf’s US Open authorities to tame such big hitting.
“Try to make it tough for Bryson and I’m telling you he will figure out how to beat you,” said his coach Mike Schy warning US Open.
Bryson DeChambeau’s coach Mike Schy told BBC World Service: “The reality is if you make it so Bryson can’t play he will figure it out.”
“They can easily change this whole situation by scaling the rough on courses and they aren’t talking about that.”
“Instead of having the same rough 200 yards out from the green, you scale it. At 200 yards it’s an inch and a half deep. At 60 yards it’s six or seven inches deep. The game can go back to strategy and risk and reward if you scale the rough in the right way.
“If you scale the rough it becomes back to how it used to be.”
